We are in an unprecedented period here in the USA and throughout the world. Never have words we speak and write mattered so much. Conversations between family members and friends, by politicians and activists and the breath of comments on social media and TV have our heads swimming with anger, emotion and excitement. The band-aid has been ripped off otherwise taboo and sensitive subjects. I am actually encouraged by all of this and the changes we hope are coming into our culture, government structures locally, regionally and nationally and the greater society. In that spirit, we have created a new series of embroidery projects called the Wisdom Collection. These embroidery kits feature the portraits and wise quotes of artists, musicians, writers and leaders whose voices and words matter. We hear their voices and they and give us guidance and ways to think about ourselves and the people around us.
